2013 runner-up Sabine Lisicki easy winner in 1st round at Wimbledon

  • Print

LONDON - Last year's runner-up, Sabine Lisicki of Germany, advanced to the second round at Wimbledon on Tuesday with a 6-2 6-1 win in less than hour over Julia Glushko of Israel.

Lisicki was given the first match assignment on Centre Court on Tuesday usually reserved for the defending champion. But Marion Bartoli of France, who beat Lisicki in last year's final, has retired and the honour fell to Lisicki.

The 19th-seeded Lisicki finished the match with a break of Glushko's service on a net cord.

Before the match, Bartoli was part of a tribute to Elena Baltacha, the former British No. 1 who died of liver cancer on May 4 at the age of 30.
